Ms. Siracusa 11
Objective: I can use persuasive language to convince the reader of my point of view.
This 3rd grade lesson is a great way to build on author's purpose- specifically persuasion. This lesson should be completed after a few persuasion lessons.
Allow students to make a poster or a wall of "Our Persuasive Language." As a class, build the wall with post its of what persuasive language students have used. Whether they find the language in an article they read, or see it in a friends writing, encourage persuasive language to constantly be posted on the wall.
This worksheet can build on persuasive language. Have students pick a topic that interests them most. Students will then write their opinion and back it up with persuasive language from the wall they have created as a class.
